“Wealth building is investing in assets; shifting your money management habits from spending to investing or a billionaire strategy.”
If you are asked the question – ‘how wealthy are you’, what would you answer be. Well, our ideology or precepts about life will determine how we approach the question and therefore, the answer we give. What is wealth? How can I be wealthy and why do I need to be wealthy are some of the questions in this discussion aimed to provoke us to think.
First of all I have to point out that we have been given diverse gifts, talents, resources and opportunities to develop new skills by the Almighty God – the giver of all good and perfect gifts.
Sometime and indeed as always, these abilities which have been freely given to us may lie dormant or under utilised. In this article I’ll explore different ways we can adopt to fan these gifts or abilities into flame or develop our different mental acuities to enable us profit from them.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not in your own understanding and in all your ways acknowledge Him.”
